Building Student Resiliency

Here's a great article on how parents can help support their child's budding resiliency--an essential skill needed in order to navigate their world with confidence and meaning. Sometimes, out of deep empathy and the desire to prevent our children from suffering or experiencing hardship, adults (parents and teachers alike) will want to "step in" and solve a child's problems themselves without more properly mentoring or coaching the child to navigate those waters themselves. This isn't meant to say we let the child "sink or swim" all on their own. Rather, this different approach provides the child with opportunities to experience key learning, through difficulty, that will benefit them greatly in their futures.
